Let nature flow in

Yesterday I blogged about being exhausted. Well that feeling did not go away during the day. I hoped it was going to pass but it did not. If anything it got worse.

It all went down hill at snack time, I’ll tell you why.

I was really pushing myself to have more energy. I got the girls up, dressed and fed and they were playing in the living room contently. They got cranky so they went for a morning rest and I cleaned. Once I was done cleaning, I got the girls and decided to get outside with them.
We had to have snack first, so I boiled a couple eggs for the three of us.
I thought I had boiled them enough to be ‘hardboiled eggs’ but I did not. Once they were peeled, I noticed that the yokes were still runny. Cleverly, I put them in the microwave to cook up the yokes. They were producing alot of steam when I took them out. I waited a few minutes and though it would be best if I tried my egg first.

As I bit into the egg, it exploded in my face.

You heard me, EXPLODED! Egg pieces everywhere, steam and heat hitting my face!

It was wild and it really hurt. My lips are all burnt and dry now. It was awful. I had to suck on a bag of ice for nearly an hour to get rid of the pain on my lips and gums.

I guess you aren’t suppose to put eggs in the microwave without puncturing them a little. Lesson learned!

Well needless to say I got pretty whiny after the egg explosion accident and didn’t want to do anything. We didn’t go outside, we just stayed in. My whole face hurt and all I wanted to do was go to bed. It did not help the mood.

Last night I decided, no more half ass days of exhaustion!
Friday was going to be a good day.
I went to bed early woke up at 4:45 am and went for a walk.

Getting outside on a wonderfully warm morning is exactly what I needed. I escaped by myself, but in a healthy way. I didn’t disappear to my bed and ignore the world. I just had exactly what I was craving, alone time.

Being outside brought me out of my head for a bit. It let me forget about the complexity of my inner problems and reminded me of the simplicity of the world around me. It reminded me of beauty and peace. Being outside this morning brought me energy and excitement for the day!

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy., while care will drop off like autumn leaves

John Muir

I didn’t climb a mountain, like the quote said, but I believe this quote can transcend to all experience to nature and the great outdoors. I let my walk energize me and all my trouble drop off like autumn leaves.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Much love,

Jessica
